Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
Prepare for a hands-on career in an in-demand field. If you want to build or design the manufacturing machines of tomorrow, improve your city’s infrastructure, or work with electronic components and wiring, explore a program from the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics cluster.
Electronics Technician Fundamentals is a one-year program that focuses on the installation and assembly of a wide variety of electronic equipment. In addition to comprehensive training in electronic theory, lab experience is an integral part of the program. The study areas include AC/DC principles, transistor operation, digital circuits, soldering and fabrication techniques. The operation and use of various test and diagnostic equipment is included throughout the curriculum. The program prepares the students for a broad range of entry-level electronic assembly positions.
Gateway Electronics program students begin working with electronics on the first day of class. Topics covered in the program include installation, maintenance, modification, diagnosis and troubleshooting of a wide variety of electronic equipment. After comprehensive training in electronic theory, skills are practiced in the lab including the operation and use of various testing and diagnostic equipment.
Learn how to assist in designing the products of tomorrow and the machines that make them in Mechanical Design Technology program at Gateway Technical College. Mechanical engineering technicians help mechanical engineers design, develop, test and manufacture special machinery, consumer products and other equipment. They develop sketches and rough layouts, record and analyze data, and make calculations and estimates.
Learn how to design and work with HDTVs, computers, wireless communication and alternative energy systems with an associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Gateway Technical College. Electrical and electronic engineering technicians help engineers design and develop computers, communication equipment, medical monitoring devices and navigational equipment. Technicians may also work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment.
In today’s fast-paced society being able to quickly get from place to place is essential. Become a part of the team designing the highways of tomorrow with a Civil Engineering Technology (CET) – Highway Technology associate degree at Gateway Technical College.
Civil engineering technicians help civil engineers plan the construction of highways, buildings, bridges and other structures. Highway technicians may also estimate construction costs, prepare drawings and develop a list of needed supplies.
